Welcome to RAC's Gallery
We’re open 6 days a week (the gallery is closed on Monday) and admission is free.
Drop by our light, airy first-floor gallery to explore stimulating high-quality art that changes each month.
During the course of a year we display diverse works in all media – acrylic, computer art, drawings, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, prints, sculpture and watercolor.
Our goal is to provide maximum exposure for the talents of RAC members. Six exhibitions include 40-80 works exclusively by RAC exhibiting members … all members and the public have the opportunity to be juried into three other exhibits … and the first exhibit each year features artwork by RAC instructors and students.
NEXT EXHIBITION RECEPTION:
THROUGH JUNE 28th
The juror was award-winning artist/teacher William Nelson, who said, “Who are you talking to?” is a beautifully precise painting , whose quiet and amused subject seemed to be tickled to life with gentle caresses of color. Ms. Robinson’s untitled portrait in the painting category was brought to life with aggressive slashes of pigment that commanded my attention.”
“Focus Under Forty” features 47 works in all media by 30 artists ages 18 through 39. The other winners by medium are: Drawings - 1st Spencer Brainard (Astoria, NY); Mixed Media - 1st Erin Jenkins (Norwalk), 2nd Katelyn Vickery (Norwalk), 3rd Joseph Dermody (New Haven), honorable mention Hilary Archer (Wilton); Paintings – 2nd Teeke Eaton-Koch (Riverside), 3rd Pilar Garra (New Canaan), honorable mention Erin Dolan (Norwalk); Photography – 1ST Burr Tweedy (Darien), 2nd Sam Massey (Norwalk), 3rd Kerry Long (Trumbull); Sculpture - 1st Mark Andreas (Stamford), honorable mention Tom Reilly (New Haven).
Exhibition judges and jurors are recruited from throughout the regional arts community -- professional artists, curators, gallery directors, academics and instructors. Award winners are announced during the free reception for each exhibit.
In addition to the exhibitions in our full gallery, we occasionally present special solo or small group shows in RAC’s Portside Gallery.
